  • A broadband Internet connection with upload/download speeds of 5 megabyte per second

Steps to Run a Full Node

Download knb_mainnet.json and static-nodes.json from

Unzip file geth


Make node folder

mkdir node

Initialize the Node

./geth --datadir ./node init knb_mainnet.json

Copy the static-nodes.json to node/geth

Run the Nodes

./geth --datadir node --syncmode 'full' --gcmode=archive --port 40605 --http --http.port 3545 --http.api 'personal,eth,net,web3,admin,miner,txpool,debug' --bootnodes enode://e8b960268a7f9644e2a886dbbd211b237eb770b3961b260c5df75def555711a90b132caaedf58579bffc6660d3360fc653b3210fb5af3f8948ae55dc7850cbbf@ --networkid 13600 --allow-insecure-unlock
